gradsIt’s that time of year!  Spring rains are falling and students are completing their final semesters of High School or college and walking across the stage.  This Sunday (5/26) we will be celebrating with and honoring our graduates.  We’ll be enjoying a potluck meal following the service and will be presenting them each with a gift.
